What Size Crabitats Does Everyone Have?

Post by Motörcrab » Wed Nov 20, 2019 6:16 pm

Xeno and I have a plan we are working on. I don't want to go into too much detail yet. We need some simple help from everyone. I'd like to know what size tank/s everyone has. Im trying to figure out what sizes are the most common. I don't need dimensions unless it is a custom build. Just basic info. 10 G, 20 long, 20 tall, 29 G, you get the idea. Thanks!

If you're looking to see what size tank would be most commonly found used... 30gal is the most used in the fish community followed by 10.

I want to get an average size so I can figure out a width and height that can work universally for all tanks. Maybe two sizes rather than something for each tank size. It sounds like I'm crazy, maybe, but just need the info now. Thanks again.
